If you look around the internet right now, then the conclusion that most fans of “The Bachelor” seem to be drawing is that Desiree Hartsock from Sean Lowe’s season is the current favorite to be “The Bachelorette.” She was both funny and serious at times, and really just seemed to be done in by the fact that she had a brother who was not impressed by Sean Lowe, and simply did not want anything to do with her. (She has since come to his defense, saying that she forgives him for coming on a little too strong.)
So if Desiree does end up getting the chance to hand out roses later this year, when will we find out? ABC confirmed today that the decision on the next “Bachelorette” will be made during the “After the Final Rose” special following “The Bachelor” on Monday, March 11. It will be shortly after this date that the series will begin production, since the show is forced to move pretty quickly. Some other candidates for the gig include the just-eliminated AshLee Frazier, inspirational story Sarah Herron, darkhorse Lesley Murphy, and whoever loses out on the final rose this season, whether it be Lindsay Yenter or Catherine Giudici.
ABC also announced that the show is going to return to TV on Monday, May 20, which we are guessing is going to be directly after the first part of the “Dancing with the Stars” finale in order to give the show a great lead-in straight out of the gate. Emily Maynard’s season last year was very successful, and in many ways started the upswing of the franchise that has carried over to Sean Lowe this winter.
